Yes, Happy Birthday! I know very few people who are so helpful in an open-source kind of way, getting nothing directly back. You're a real boon to the cycling community.

Happy Birthday Sheldon!

You have been an inspiration in my accepting the view that if it is on a bicycle, and it works, it is all good!

Please continue to bless the online cycling community with your wit and wisdom for many years!

Sheldon, you are without equal. Thanks of all the indespensible information seemingly unavailable anywhere else.


seeing this is your birthday, i can understand the attraction (or veiled contempt?) for the old french standard...... 22.0 quills, anyone?

Happy birthday, again!

Tonight, after a hard days work, when I have reached my dwelling, I will raise a glass containing some form of alcoholic beverage in your honor. Then, I will drink it and wait one hour before operating heavy machinery. Huzzah!
